Are You A Magician or Do You Do Magic Tricks?

Are You A Magician or Do You Do Magic Tricks? That’s the question. What are you answering to yourself? And what is the difference? Often people start out buying a trick or two. Soon they amass more and more tricks. They love it and the reaction they get. Benefits? Plenty. It’s an ice breaker. It makes you the center of attention. It gives you self-confidence and you can  even make money from it. Besides that, it teaches you to think differently in all aspects of life. Things are not always as they seem. But even if you are having fun and performing tricks, does that make you a magician? It may, and it may not. It depends on your natural ability as a performer. Some of us have it and some of us do not, even though we can do the tricks well, there are things that are not in the instructions. These are the tricks of the trade. This is what separates the men from the boys. (Just an expression, ladies!) Where do you learn the tricks of the trade? There are books and DVD’s of course. You can take a magic course, but even magic courses may teach you magic tricks, but not necessarily the tricks of the trade. Enter, Guy Camirand of the Camirand Academy of Magic.

Guy Camirand is a seasoned professional, with many high paying gigs under his belt, from corporations to children’s shows , from walk around to stage, he has done it all and has been giving courses since the 80’s. A producer of magic effects, magic books and DVD’s, he has a lot to offer his students. In his course you learn more than magic tricks.
